Please note I am not a licensed psychologist or psychiatrist but I have done a lot of research for the show. Ruth's plan fit in with a long history story of racial hoaxes. In which white women have falsely accused members of a marginalized group of a crime. A famous case occurred in nineteen ninety four when a white white woman Susan Smith murdered her children and then invented a fictitious black man whom she accused of carjacking her and kidnapping her children legal scholar. Katheryn Russell Brown identified as many as sixty seven similar cases between nineteen eighty-seven and nineteen ninety-six ex- in her study Russell found that in a number of cases the hoax was created with great attention to detail.

The herself even though the expense cost more than half of the weekly allowance Albert gave her to run the household. She figured the cost would be worth the eventual. We'll pay out with the policy in place. Ruth began to think less about how to get a divorce and more about how to become a widow when we return ruthin judd concocted deadly plot to get rid of. Albert's Snyder now back to the story in late nineteen twenty five thirty thirty year old. Ruth Snyder was deeply infatuated with her new lover. thirty-three-year-old Judd Gray.
